Need some good music like Autechre

Recommended Posts

<3 Parker

 

I follow the london improv scene as much as I can so I've seen him live many times. There's nothing like being in that room for that kinda wooly improv stuff

^^^Such a thing like Parker must actually be a live sensory orgasm.

 
Meanwhile, returning to the IDM territory:
 
this piece of Brothomstates could appear as a sort of particularly chaotic breakcore, but in reality, listening carefully and going behind the chaos of pop samples, there is a nervous and mechanical progression that reminds me in some way the central part of Augmatic Disport ( and I must say that among the thousand faces of Autechre, if I had to say a fragment that better than any other could represent that incredible thing that they are, I would say Augmatic at 4:34 )

very impressive man how do you make this sounds ?? last track could be from elseq

Akemie's Spirit was a patch of multiple channels of fm, which I live recorded into Ableton, and then I cross faded between multiple takes. Cheers!

"Good" is certainly arguable but with my new album of modular beats I was going for an Autechre sound.

nice tracks.  

 

i get accused of trying to  autechre-ing all the time ;)    certainly happens w/the modular some times. though i don't think anyone really sounds like autechre.  they do a thing. 

 

anyway.. this thread is bring some goods. :)

^ is it possible to make an emotional semi-experimental piece of electronic music without sounding like ae?

i think it is.. 

 

but i think the thing is.. people who aren't obsessively listening to this kind of music to know the difference.. even reviewers of music on blogs and wherever.. those people are going to refer to autechre at some point in the review... 

 

to me.. grischa lichtenberger does not sound like autechre.. but when reading a review of his work or interview etc autechre is going to come up because well.. they've done everything at one time or another.. they've created genres and opened doors for people to do whatever weird shit they are into.. well.. them and other people.. it's not just ae.. but they are singular in a lot of ways.. we all know the story, know the music.. can plot on a map the trajectory of their career etc... i don't know wtf i'm talking about.. there's a huge amount of music out there that is challenging and weird and interesting and often good... 

 

but when someone says "oh you're just trying to out autechre autechre" well that just falls flat for me... lot's of people are into weird shit.. can't deny though that autechre has influenced the language of things.. idk.. hard to parse it out.. 

 

i can live w/the criticism or however it's framed.. i've no pretense of being good or popular or original.  i do think that there are lot's of people making music out there who have their own voice.. who aren't mimicking stuff.. but perhaps are at times overwhelmed by influences for a while until they figure out what they have to say..  thank god we're passed the 2001 era of skittery hiphop beats and FM bell tones though.. jesus. 

 

there's an interview on the art/music/technology blog w/ leafcutter john where he offhandedly comments about "not gonna do that" in reference to autechre because it's already being done pretty well.. fair enough.. i guess.  it's a good listen.. lot's of great stuff on that podcast.

autechre always changes but somehow always sounds like autechre. 

 

also, autechre is a way to describe something.. same as aphex etc..

Eomac's new album "Reconnect" (on his own label Eotrax) is partly inspired by Autechre. It doesn't sound much like them, but has some of the most complex, fast and polyrhythmic beats i've heard in electronic music. It's pretty dark too.

 

Had to listen to this track a few times before it was starting to make sense

Those who loved Oversteps should enjoy this guys work.

It is emergent/generative music from a network of programed nodes.

 Thanks for the link, this is really great

 

 

NetWorks is both a music-generating (MIDI-data-generating) program and a body of musical work. It is based on artificial-life and complex adaptive systems research and the Honing Theory of creativity (Gabora 2010). NetWorks uses a hierarchical, scale-free network to generate music that can range from orderly to chaotic. At the ‘edge of chaos’ it generates patterns that exhibit emergent complexity through coherent musical development at low, mid and high levels of musical organization, and often suggests a sense of direction through goal seeking behaviours.
